General Details

Few vessels can rival the respect as that of a Bertram, built by a company with a reputation for designing and building quality pleasure boats. The legendary Miami-based sport fishing yacht manufacturer is internationally renowned for outstanding performance in big seas, and leading edge marine design innovations. The interior layout of the 38 is well suited for family cruising although she is usually considered to be a fishing boat where her large cockpit and precise handling are most appreciated. Powered by twin Detroit 6-cyl. 300 hp diesel engines, recently serviced,, she is equipped with air conditioning, inverter, autopilot and has had numerous costly upgrades and replacements the latest couple of years. Since 2002, she has had very little use and is ready for her new discerning owner who recognizes value and quality.

The owner may be interested in a trade for a sailboat or classic car, or?
